Hot and Spicy Cocktail Nuts

I like having several bowls of nuts, olives, and other nibbles out at parties for people to snack on. This recipe, with its complex and tasty mix of spices and oomph are one of my favorites to serve because they are easy to make, store well, and go great with beer or cocktails.

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Pinch cayenne (or to taste)
1 pound unsalted nuts

Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet over low heat. Add the Worcestershire sauce, paprika, hot pepper sauce, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and cayenne and mix well. Add the nuts and toss well to coat. Cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently over low heat until the nuts are lightly toasted. Drain on paper towels and serve hot, or store in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to serve.

Makes 1 pound spiced nuts.
